Birth: Sep. 12, 1808
Schoharie County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 10, 1895
Boone County
Illinois, USA

Daughter of Elizabeth (Bice) and Elijah Dickinson. Married Hugo Solomon Livingston February 12, 1827, Middleburgh, Schoharie County, New York. Carpet weaver. 14 children.

Mrs. Lovina LIVINGSTON died at her home in Manchester on March 10th,1895, aged 86 years 5 months and twenty-six days. Lovina DICKINSON was born in Schoharie, New York in 1808; was married in Middleburg, that state, in Feb. 1827 to Hugh LIVINGSTON. In 1853 they sold their farm in New York and came West. They remained in Ohio a short time, then came to Illinois and bought the farm where she lived until her death.

Twelve children were born to them: twin infants, daughters, were buried in New York and they lost one son, David, in the Civil War, and one son, Isaac, died in his twenty-third year, leaving a family of four sons and four daughters to mourn her death.

One daughter lives in New York, two sons and one daughter in Iowa, Mrs. SAGE, who lived with her mother, Arthur, our trusted Supervisor, and James, who works in the National Sewing Machine factory at Belvidere.

She was a woman beloved by all who knew her, and no one was better known or more highly respected than Aunt Vina, as she was commonly called. Of a quiet disposition, always ready to help the needy. Thus one by one the old settlers are gathered to their reward.

The funeral was held on the following Wednesday from the church at Hunter: the services were conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. M. CORMACK, and the remains were laid to rest in the Livingston Cemetery by the side of her husband, who preceded her about twenty-six years. She leaves twenty-eight grandchildren and twenty-eight great-grandchildren.
